    Actually, I think 50 posts or >20 and two weeks. But it might be hard to administer and keep track of that way. So I'd say 50 posts is a good number.

    What about those people who do not post a lot but read a lot? 10 is a good number for me.

    Guess ... that's why I said, "One month or a hundred posts."

    Can I give you the perspective of a guy who han't been around long but who has shot his mouth off a fair bit?

    I don't care. And I doubt if many new members care.

    A hundred posts? I could do that standing on my head. (And some of them even make sense.)

    Yeah, some people seem to rise fast.

    One month or 100 posts are appropriate.
    At least that keeps most people from creating new
    members to sway polls.

    I think that there are already sleepers in place in case the one month carries. There's a few people who joined at the time of the PM debacle that have posted to 10 posts and now are nonactive. I bet they'll pop back up as soon as another ban thread appears. If PM ever reappears anyway.

    I kinda think he is back among us as a different name. Trying to be a bit cooler. I think that at least one of the new anti-Muslim posters was PM trying to see if we would treat them as bad as we did him. I also think a certain mod was in on it. I hope he learned that it isn't all about hating Islam that caused the stress. I could be wrong about the whole thing though. Just something I've deduced from this and that.

    well, if PM comes back to us and is a rational member, ill be more then willing to not try to find out that he is PM, but maybe we should check the IP's of some of the radical Muslim supporters to see if they match PM's, just incase

    yes!

    *the relentless march of facism and its hideous practitioners continues.
    *the assault on freedom and the democratic impulse intensifies to obscene levels
    *the disenfranchisement of the n00b has begun
